Question Booster to fit 3 across in Passat with Dionos


New member

I am looking to upgrade my 6.5 year old to a booster.
I will need to fit 3 across in my 2008 Passat wagon.
Child 1 - 6.5 years, booster tbd
Child 2 - 3.5 years, FF diono radian rxt
Child 3 - 6 months RF diono radian rxt

I have tried a Graco turbobooster, and the fit is TIGHT and near to impossible to buckle the seat belt.
I'm now looking at the Peg Perego Flex 120. It looks narrow (14" at the base!!) and no armrests make it seem easier to buckle in.
Any experiences or input would be appreciated.

That one's a good bet. If you can try a Diono Monterey in store and have a headrest there I've actually found it puzzles well with the Radian sometimes.

Make sure you're installing with seatbelt for maximum room too!

I was able to fit the diono FF, diono RF and peg Perego flex!
I had a carseat tech check it and help with install.
The FF diono and Peg are installed with UAS and the RF diono is installed with the seatbelt.
